Gnoph-Keh image
Gnoph-Keh is a creature who appears in the H.P. Lovecraft-inspired Cthulhu Mythos.

Description

Spawned by the Great Old One Aphoom-Zhah, Gnoph-Keh appears to be an exceptionally large member of the Gnophkeh race; indeed, he may in fact be the species progenitor. Described as something akin to a six-legged Polar Bear, it sports wicked claws, long matted white hair, and a single large horn which resembles that of a Narwhal. Gnoph-Keh is known to be a cannibalistic entity.

Currently lying imprisoned beneath the icy surface of Hyperborea, how Gnoph-Keh came to be there is a mystery, although it is possible that he was trapped when Aphoom-Zhah and Ithaqua enacted their partially-successful plan to freeze the world.
